Chapter: I Am Lily

Love it! Lily was believable, hating her perfection while others would kill for it.
James was good, striking out at her with the gum to show that even she wasn't perfect.
Love it

Chapter: I Am Lily

I really like the tone of this story. I like how Lily discovers that she doesn't like being perfect in everybody's eyes. And I can actually sympathize with her, to a point. I used to have shoulder-length ringlets, and everybody exclaimed over me and them, but they grew out and straightened. Now I just have ludicrously thick, wavy hair. But for a time there, I didn't feel RIGHT, like I was pretending to be someone. And I have always felt that I am completely and totally myself around my older brother. We joke and are immature together, and just be ourselves. But when I had that hair, when I was 7 or so, I realized that people liked me because I was cute, and that they just liked to admire my hair. When I was 9, my ringlets were completely gone, and I found that I really was making friends and having a great time. I know I was pretty young, but I still am, so I have a lot to learn, but I think that sort of freeing yourself from who people think you are is totally well, I can't think of any better word, so AWESOME, but that still doesn't seem right. Oh, well.
Sorry for the long-winded story about my little-kid life. But I really did enjoy the story. It meant a lot to me. I think she was really brave to do that, and I like how there's that little part with James, when he says that she isn't perfect, and so he's not sorry that he gave her a slight problem in her perfect little world. I also love how James comes back later after she cuts her hair, and she realizes that she's only really her around him. And how he likes her hair, and that he's the only person who is going to say that. But anyway! Thanks for reading all of this babble. I don't usually write this much about stories, but this one really impacted me, so I felt that since us writers don't get any other reward for writing, the least I could to was to compliment you and tell you that I loved it! Thanks again,
Katie

Love the way you depict the complexity of being perceived as "perfect." Lily being dumped for the first time, not knowing whether to laugh or cry, needing to do something extreme & reckless ... all of it rings true. I can totally imagine Liy falling for James under the circumstances in your story. Very nice. Very romantic.

Author's Response: :D :D :D Thank you!

Wow, what a totally cool story! The fact that everyone thought she was perfect, and it ticked her off, so she did something crazy. What a sweet idea!

Chapter: I Am Lily

Wow, this was wonderful! I must say, I don't usually see stories that portray Lily Evans as anything less than perfect--which is what your whole story was about.

I love the transformation of Lily, and how it was done with her hair. To a teenage girl, hair is a big deal. Bad hair days=end of the world. I love how Lily chopped it off ruthlessly, and I love how she adored it.

Wow, this is pretty much my favorite story. Ever. *adds to faves again and again and again and again*

I'll have fun looking for pictures for your banner. :D

You did an utterly fantastic job. *gushes*

Author's Response: Thank you, Jordan!! I'm glad you liked it. *hugs*

That was wonderful. The way Lily felt eminds me of myself earlier this year, and I did the exact same thing, I chopped of my hair. Mum wanted to keep it though cause it was the longest my hair had ever been. Thankyou for giving me the gift of your writing.

Author's Response: :D Thank you! You're review made my day.
